    A very useful tool for introducing oneself to PS Elements

    This book clearly lays out how to use the various tools in PS Elements 6.
    This is done by using actual photos of the full color work screens one would see when using the program. It uses the VISUAL aspect of the three ways we learn - visual,tactile,and auditory. Its use of colors and numbers make it easy to follow the directives of the authors. Bottom line - it allowed me to say "oohhh, now I get it. NICE!"
